Rooster Comb-Snow Mountain Loop

Rooster Comb-Snow Mountain Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This enjoyable loop passes through pleasant woods to two excellent close-in views of the Adirondacks giants. Rooster Comb and Snow Mountain are lesser peaks compared to their 4,000-foot neighbors, but both offer spectacular close-up views of those neighbors, particularly from the summit of Rooster Comb.

The hike described here takes you over both peaks, but you can opt out of Snow Mountain and just hike Rooster Comb as a loop
(5.7 miles, including a spur to Valley View Ledge), or you can hike Rooster Comb out and back the same way (5.4 miles). Snow Mountain adds an extra, fairly easy 1.4 miles to the route. Once you’re at the junction to Snow Mountain, the temptation is difficult to resist. And from Snow Mountain, you get a very nice view of Rooster Comb!"
